Breaking the Code

By Hugh Whitemore
Based on the book Alan Turing: The Enigma by Andrew Hodges

Directed by Tom Mackan
Produced by Michelle Spanik

An exceptional biographical drama about a man who broke too many codes. The eccentric genius Alan Turing played a major role in winning World War II; he broke the complex German code called Enigma, enabling allied forces to foresee German manoeuvres. Since his work was classified top secret for years after the war, no one knew how much was owed to him when he was convicted of breaking another code, one that today would hardly be worth reporting. Turing, who was also the first to conceive of computers, was hounded by overly zealous law enforcement and convicted of a “criminal act”. This play is about who he was, what happened to him and why.

“Powerful, riveting drama.”
